I saw some interesting G job postings. URL's are frowned upon, so lets just say it was a site created by craig with a list on it. They were looking for people who would rate websites for quality manually. I know they have lots of products besides search, and this could be for other products... but could it be that they are going supplement their algo with an army of raters? It think it would be a good idea on their part... and probably help out my personal sites because I still place below some MFA sites...

Google's been using human editorial input for quite a while (see Google's Secret Evaluation Lab [webmasterworld.com]) and the Google patent for using editorial opinion was granted in 2005.
